- Yale School of Management and
- University College Dublin Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School through the Global Network for Advanced Management.
IN AUGUST 2011, WILBUR ROSS, AN AMERICAN INVESTOR SPECIALIZING IN DISTRESSED COMPANIES, put together a group of investors that raised $1.6 billion to purchase 35% of the Bank of Ireland, the largest private equity deal for a European bank. As a result, the Bank of Ireland became one of the very few large Irish banks not completely nationalized, merged, or liquidated. Ross’s investment is the subject of a new raw case study developed by three members of the Global Network for Advanced Management.
